New Jersey Gas Prices Rise for Third Straight Week

Last Edited:

Drivers in New Jersey continue to see gas prices rise in the state.

The group AAA Mid-Atlantic reports that the average price for a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday, July 28th, was $2.36, which is two-cents higher than last week.

This marks the third week in a row that prices have risen in the state.

AAA officials say the increase is due to rising crude oil prices and an increase in demand for gas as more people head out on vacation.
